  3. Can I go back to H1b visa after 1yr on a EAD ?
  4. Do I have to leave country for change of status from EAD to H1b ?
  5. Can I change employer while on this EAD ?
  6. What is my status if I have to travel to India.Can I return to USA on EAD. Any travel restrictions ?
  7. I will be on medications and doctor visits for life time. Can I renew EAD beyond 1yr ?
